“beautiful site.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

Long walk up, 200 plus steep steps. Not for you if you have walking problems. We made it up and so glad we took time to do this. Falls beautiful. Much easier coming down.

“Pretty waterfall. Very short hike.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012 via mobile

Short set of stairs and then a short hike takes you to the falls. It is very pretty. I think it would be prettier in the spring with more snow melt feeding the falls.

“Well worth the stairs!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

There are many stairs to get up to this beauty but it is WELL worth it! There is no way to get real close to the falls, but it is a beautiful view from the bridge you walk to.
